The first month of 2018 has been and gone (gosh, that was quick!), and it’s time to check in with what I read for January. I only managed one picture book – but it was my favourite read for the month. The Great Rabbit Chase is a delightful offering about, as the title suggests, the quest to capture an escaped rabbit. But perhaps it is the rabbit who is capturing the people – showing them a good time! Other highlights this month were Clan of Wolves, the second on the Tarin of the Mammoths series and, although it made me cry, and The Choke, by Sofie Laguna.
As always, if I have reviewed the book, I have linked to the review so you can see what I thought.
